AFTER THE DIETx: Helping People Overcome Eating Problems

PHOENIX--June 15, 2000--After the Diet Network announces its latest offering, "Is Your Server Jammed? A New Look At Depression," by Monika M. Woolsey, MS, RD. This booklet is written as a user's manual for the most important personal computer of all--the human brain and nervous system. In an upbeat, nonthreatening way, the reader is introduced to the biological hardware and software that are programmed to perceive and respond to feelings, biochemical changes, and environmental events. The focus of the book is on recognizing impulses, compulsions, and cravings as important messages (or "e-mails") from the brain that, if listened to, can guide us away from behaviors we would like to change. Topics include: neurons and neurotransmitters, how the system works, how eating affects mood, how mood affects eating, pharmacological and nonpharmacological ways to restore balance, how to recognize when you need help, who is most qualified to help you, and why dieting might only exacerbate the problem in need of intervention.

This booklet is scheduled to go to press at the end of June. A special pre-publication price is available for those who would like to reserve a copy from the first print run. Ordering information is available at the After the Diet Online Store, http://www.afterthediet.com. For these orders, shipping will occur at the beginning of July.

After the Dietx Network is a Phoenix, Arizona based network consisting of health experts committed to promoting the benefits of physical and emotional health.

I am interested in doing research on a possible link between eating disorders and high IQ's. So many of the people I treat have very high IQ's. There are many emotional characteristics associated with a high IQ and most people are not aware of these. Many could definately be contributing factors to an eating disorder, such as extreme sensitivity and perfectionism. I would be interested in any personal or professional information anyone can offer. In exchange I would be happy to e mail them more information about having a high IQ. Thank you.

I'm Steven Bratman MD, formerly a holistic physician in practice in Ft. Collins, now an author. A few years back I "invented" a disease: orthorexia nervosa. This term indicates an emotionally unhealthy obsession with eating healthy food ("ortho" means "right"). I later wrote a book on the topic, and now Dateline TV wants to do a show.

How do you know if you have orthorexia?

  • Are you obsessed with eating health food, and can't seem to stop thinking about it?
  • Do you frequently feel guilty about eating the wrong food and have to undertake fasts and purifications to forgive yourself?
  • Does your focus on health food get in the way of your social life?
  • Do you sometimes wish you could quit thinking about healthy food entirely?

If you recognize yourself in this, and would like to appear on DATELINE to talk about it, give me a call... 970-484-6955
